Are you sure it is G not F Toffolo.

For a windowfull of such pieces by Franco Toffolo go to Yetserday's Today in Perth Scotland. Freshly made. While he has retired, he still works out of John Deacon's workshop in Crieff.

Could well be G toffolo as Giacomo was senior glassblower at Venini in the 1930's and I had one of his figures a few years back that was signed.

Perhaps someone in Scotland can check with Franco if they are related. He was already a Maestro when he moved to UK (Blackpool first, I believe)
